next fight which president obama said he is open to talking about, more spending cuts and more tax revenue has to be on the table during those talks. let's say it doesn't happen on debt ceiling. where would you agree to spending cuts on the medicare and social security? guest: they are way down on the list. of buy li my i will not agree to balancing the budget on the backs of people who can least afford it. people have paid into these programs and they do not deserve to have the government turned their back on them and start cutting these programs in the name of balancing these programs. these are programs -- nobody is getting rich on social security. have a staggering number of people who exist on their social security benefits, which they earned over their lifetime of working. cutting spending and focusing on social security is a huge mistake. host: you are serving on a task force to look at different legislation on gun control. this task force will present the recommendations in february. guest: i was honored that i was selected to that task force. i will be on that task force b

raided -- so we have rated that a promise broken. where obama talked a big game about transparency, fulfilled a lot of transparency, don't get me wrong, but on something like that, the way washington works, those negotiations are not on c- span, they are in a room at the white house where deals are cut. it is sausage being made. that promise was not fulfilled, so that one earned a broken. host: what about his broader pledges on health care? guest: health care was an area where he had a fair amount of success. he kept 47% of the health-care promises. many of those were tucked inside the health care law, which of course passed in the first two years of his presidency when democrats controlled the house. so health care was an area where he had some of his biggest success. from caffeyhear from michigan on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i think the president has kept most of his promises. everyone he could possibly keep. i mean, the republicans have gone after him like nothing. but during the presidential election, you heard him say many times -- the republicans say -- "facts

approval. president obama will take some sort of executive action and we will talk about that later this morning. 11:45 a.m. eastern time as when we expect the president. look for our coverage. on coverage on the executive orders, do you support that idea by the president to do action on his own? we want to hear from you this morning. here is the arizona republic, courtesy of the newseum in washington. do you support executive action on gun-control -- on some gun- control measures? i want to know what you think about president obama using the executive order. this is from the washington post blog. the vast majority of actions he can take are relatively minor in nature, it says. it's unlikely obama can significantly alter gun lost through executive order. what is your take on this? stephan pittman simcom indiana, republican caller. stephen, from indiana. caller: good morning. the problem is congress can steer funding from the atf or fbi on whatever executive action is taken. i understand bush had an executive order dealing with guns as well, so it is not unprecedented. but 19 is kind

: one thing i have noticed since president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until they start doing what they're supposed to do which is represent the people of the united states. we have a democratically elected republic and people need to pull out their history books and find out what that is and realize that when we send them to office, would g

2006 and i had $129,000 in my 401k and i kept reading on the internet that before obama was nominated, get your money out of the stock market. i did not think much about it and the week he was nominated, i had $92,000 left. i have talked to many other people and they lost like 75% of theirs. this has never been on the news or anything. i think this contributed to the stock market drop. guest: i appreciate your circumstance. when we look at the market decline that happened in 2008 and continued in 2009, it did not quite go down for everyone as broadly as it did in the circumstances you put forward. the market has come back a little bit and rebounded. often what happens is that when people see the market go down, we tend to pull out of the market at the wrong time and go in at the wrong time. we tend to over-invest when the market is going up and put more money in equities and less money in those fixed incomes that give you a lifetime -- host: nirs.org is the website -- thank you for your time. thank you for your time.

and iran. no one would say we are live -- we are winning in afghanistan. under obama, 70% of the debt and 80% of the injuries have occurred in afghanistan. does that sound like we are winning? guest: steve used the word "tribe." talking about, "i am not the senator from israel," the problem with this language is that it's just that those with a strong strategic review -- strategic view -- i just think that is wrong. sort of painting the other side as being on thoughtful about their relationship -- i think is wrong. when the iraq war was going poorly and senator hagel said the greatest threat united states faces is between the mountains of afghanistan and pakistan -- previously opposed the surge in afghanistan. these are issues the need to be addressed. where do we think afghanistan is going to go? why did he think at one point that afghanistan was such a strategic interest? senator hagel has made a lot of statements over the years about the middle east and central asia that i think have to be addressed. israel-u.s. relationships have to be put into context. i think the caller started

profferty are getting enough to eat. >> paul: that was president obama monday talking about congressional republicans in the final press conference of his first term. if that performance is any indication for strategy for term number two, what's likely to get done in the next four years? so, do you recognize yourself, jason, in that? >> the public says that the-- their expectations for the next four years are much lower than they were the first time. which i guess is understandable given the second term presidents, that usually happens. what your expectations for a second term. >> socialized medicine is expensive so expect obama to aggressively try and fund his first term agenda in the second term and that means, raising more revenue, more tax hikes. i think that people who make around $100,000 are really rich. you've got to go where the money is and looking for him to hit the middle class with more tax hikes in the second term. i think a top priority. >> paul: he's got to find the money somewhere to get to do this. dan, what about the theory or what you're hearing from liberals and cheer
